Writing in the early 1950s, Cannon discusses how class-conscious workers, in face of the conservatizing pressures of the emerging capitalist expansion and anticommunist witch-hunt, carried out effective union work and political activity to build a communist workers party. He discusses Washington's failure to achieve its goals in the Korean War and why the rulers reined in McCarthyism.
